never did like the DP20 (Corillian Gunship) design, to ugly :P

current work since last night:


Help me pick out which turrets to use. The larger ones match the size of the blown-up DP20...but they kinda look to big...not quite sure.


Also, sorry for strange size (8px per meter) I wasn't thinking clearly, and I don't want to go back and edit.

120 meters long. also, it has two engines, but I forgot to draw the other one in, will do so latter.

Ok, so i decided to make it smaller (natural M10 size.) so its 96 meters long, but has similar mass to a DP20.


Let me know what you think the weapon set up should look like, I've fully decided on four (2 dorsal, 2 ventral) forward medium turbolasers; but the rest of it is currently up for grabs.

But to help you think, the general role of this ship is to just charge right in, pass by its target (a larger, slower, less maneuverable ship.) And then turn around to harass the less protected areas of the enemy (engineering sections in the rear, mostly.) They are normaly deployed in pairs, or trios. And I'm think of using modular turret systems for the weapons (other then the four forward turbos.

Uploaded with ImageShack.us



Eight anti-ship turrets, eight anti-starfighter turrets and six concussion missile launchers.

I'm having a little bit of difficulty with the front end, the three engines are supposed to sit into the hull, like a deck-boat/catamaran, but I'm having difficulty with the line-art to get it to look such.

some minor work; still working on the front view, and getting the turret side-view is frustrating me.

M10 isn't a fun scale to work in at all.

Added escape pod hatches, because a ship needs escape pods!

Bridge in M20, escape pod M20
Fixed side view, updated the ship, and final weapons configuration.

8 twin turbolasers, between light and medium in power, four twin laser cannons (one per escape pod) roughly equal to the cannons from the TIE/ln and four concussion missile launchers with a magazine of 18 missiles each.

This ship also features modular pods and is currently fitted with four non-hyperspace A-Wings (and whatever extra features they bring to the table). Other starfighters like A-9's, TIE/interceptors, and other small craft have different pods. And other types of pods can include heavy missile systems, ECM, cargo, etc...

Anyone want to help me do a side view of the large turrets?

I keep not getting anything to look right.

just a little bit of work, not finished but the general idea is there.

The Onslaught-class is an atmospheric capable warship, making it perfect for use as a armed and armored transport.

Carrying four regular-sized drop pods, a single Onslaught can deliver 360 assault troops to any location and provide heavy support to those troops. Or, 232 troops and 4 light or medium combat tanks. Specialty configurations such as med-bays, communications and control centers, semi-permanent barracks and more are possible.

Basic - single level drop pod. Upper greenstuff will be life support, communications and control and emergency parachutes.

Image


Basic battle plan is that X number of Onslaught gunships fitted with drop pods and support by other elements of the fleet can bring a modest number of troops to critical areas quickly and support those troops with enough firepower that the defenders will be unable to mount an attack of sufficient strength to overwhelm the troops. The Onslaught-class is most then capable of engaging air-speeders, ground vehicles and most planetary forces which consist of older fighters and up to CR-90 corvettes and analogues.

A standard Onslaught- ground assault force consists of 5 ships, for a total of 1800 ground troops. Along with two other Onslaughts configured with either airspeeder pods or starfighter pods; in addition to other ships present.

It sees more updates on SWDA; but that simply because I don't have to use an external hosting service...

having to use a external hosting service kinda makes this site extra work.

Here's the update for the day; the tank carrying set up can now include two speeder bikes; and additional fuel for the vehicles or reactors. This set up has less extra cargo space then the pure trooper one; but does have a small back door for the bikes to exit quickly and safely.
